Tomorrow afternoon sees the start of Hendon's FA Cup campaign for the 2006/07 season. Arlesey Town, who are currently 7th in Division One North, are our opponents at Claremont Road following their 2-1 extra time win in the Preliminary Round over Ilford last week. Arlesey have had a good start to the season, winning one and drawing four of their five league games, although they did go down 3-1 to Slough Town in the Westview Cup on Tuesday evening. The two clubs have met twice in recent years, both in the league cup. In September 2001 the Greens ran out 4-3 winners at Hitchin Road with Dale Binns scoring twice and Bontcho Guentchev and David Adekola also finding the back of the net, while in December 2002 Hendon won 2-1 at Claremont Road with Ricci Crace and Paul Towler getting on the scoresheet. Should there be a need for a replay it would take place on Tuesday 19th September at Arlesey's Hitchin Road ground, kicking off at 7.45pm.
